It’s night. The lamp goes out. Sweetheart, barely lying down, feels his bed swaying in the dark. Under the moon, he sees the dunes of yellow sand take shape, the blue surface of the sea moving, and a pretty red boat appearing. Everything invites him to leave and announces a beautiful journey to a wonderful country where the sky is filled with bright lights. He will not be disappointed by this poetic expedition, tinged with magic and celebration… What a dreamy night!



With the help of small details and transitioning from the black and white of the first pages to color, Véronique Massenot celebrates the night, this moment of all anxieties and adventures for very young children. Sweetheart’s happiness is that of all those who fall asleep and marvel. There is no doubt that their pleasure in advancing slowly into sleep will be even greater in the loving company of an adult.


Note: Véronique Massenot, who knows well the mysteries of time for children, has also thought about the day for little ones… So, alongside “Goodnight Sweetheart” she has created “Good morning, Sweetheart”. The two books are independent but complement each other.
